This is a discussion on Strategies during early periods of cash game sessions within the online poker forums, in the Cash Games section; Is it valid to consider playing a bit conservatively very early in a cash session? Building a bit of rythm, before attempting a big move
Is it valid to consider playing a bit conservatively very early in a cash session? Building a bit of rythm, before attempting a big move on someone? (even if you have considerable data on him)
Or is it basically getting scared of busting early on? Which is problematic, because isn't even if a player is in the very first hand, the optimal move is the optimal move!
Also, I'm curious to know whats your game plan during early periods of a cash game session?
If I sit down at a new cash table, I play in the beginning very tight and try to observe my opponents. If I don't feel comfortable, I leave and search anotherone. Also I prefer to have a tight image at the table. Of course, if I get early premium hands like QQ+, I look for some action.
Later in a 6 ring cashgame, I play more loose. Depeneding also on the come and go at the table
re: Poker & Strategies during early periods of cash game sessions
I don't think the amount of time you've been at the table should have anything to do with how you play the hands you're dealt. You should play your hand as best as possible given opening ranges and positions involved in the hand and develop a strategy based on that and not how long you've been at the table.
For the first time you see a person, study the nature of his game.See how long a person has been playing poker.That he usually plays and you will immediately understand the course of events and the outcome of the game with him.there are exceptions such as for example you prepare a person for a push and he leaves at the last moment from defeat happens on the river reaches him what can you do this is a game.
